This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
These have been a long time coming and I've finally uploaded! Sorry for the wait guys.

This fixes two issues I had with EA's face overlay, I've removed the pink lip tinge that comes with Teen, Young Adult, Adult and Elder females and replaced the Eye whites for all ages and genders with my own to enable smaller eye's.

EA are fond of doing silly seemingly useless little things and the eye whites are no exception, they've put the iris texture onto the overlay for the eye white which means any eye texture smaller than EA's will have a pale blue ring.....
Look at the screen shot using my small eye and you can see why there aren't many smaller eye replacements!

I removed the eye texture from my game for a better comparison (don't worry, your sims won't suddenly have a freaky eye!)

The lip overlay has been removed completely, while its not an issue on paler Sims, darker and fantasy colours just look sooooo wrong. Besides if I wanted my Sims to have a lip tinge I'd just slap a lipstick on.

There are three packages for you too choose from and you can only have one in your game (remember you can't have any other Face overlay replacements either).
Eye whites & Lips give you the full fix,
Eye whites will give you Just the eye whites
Lip overlay will just give you the removed lip overlay without the eye white.
I wouldn't have bothered with the last two but I thought some of you may want a choice.

Remember if you do create smaller eyes using the eye white overlay then down-loader's will need to have it in their game to, so don't forget to link.

Pop it in your mods folder and enjoy.

Ok, so I thought I should start linking to other small eyes that don't change the face overlay. I hope to see this list get bigger!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
